Seriously, the only reason MP3 sold less was because it was released at the same time as diablo 3. I mean, it completely overshadowed the game. Talk about bad management.
1. Totally different target groups. Not even WoW suffered from the D3 release.

2. Díablo 3 is a PC exclusive. Especially the console sales of Max Payne 3 were very weak in the first few weeks.

3. Torchlight 2 Pre-order sales INCREASED during the release of D3.

No, MP3 failed commercially because it was produced for the CoD crowd which hasn't any interrest in this "old" IP at all. And the few players who still remember Max Payne didn't want a "modern" shooter, they want a classic max Payne game. With less brazilian summer, more New Yorker winter, less "cinematics", more gameplay.
